Not the best day to take pictures, but I have a bunch blooming and the time to do it today.

Coquette des Blanches Rose

I just love this Dorothy Rose Columbine, it is the perfect shade of pink.

  Here is the other side of my steps, you can see it fills in so nicely.

The borders are getting bigger every day.  If the sun would stay out it would help.

Don’t pay any attention to my garden hose being out…. oops!

Spirea, coneflowers and daylily will be blooming soon.  My butterfly bush is already really big, may be cutting it back this week.

This bed is pretty with red blooms right now, this will be yellow, purple and orange later this summer.

The lambs ear is ready to bloom soon too.

My hydrangeas are all budded out, I am so happy they will bloom this year.  Last year the frost got them.

  4. I love your gardens..so nicely done..though I was wondering how on earth you keep them so orderly and clean, mine become chaotic..lol. Are your delphiniums already blooming? Oh jealousy! I love the wide open grass areas and the cute little birds near the pond. And...the way you have added the boulders within the beds. I wonder if you'd mind my borrowing your idea of the birdhouses along the porch railing? I just adore that idea. I found your blog by accident, but will certainly be back.
